|Postal District||Port Ludlow|
|Project Description||Shoreline conditional use, shoreline substantial development, and flood development application for new Pacific geoduck (Panopea generosa) farm on 5.15 acres of tidelands in Squamish Harbor. The geoduck planting area extends from about +2 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) down to approximately -1-foot MLLW and -2-foot MLLW. The proposed aquaculture will be located at least 16.4 feet from the edge of a native eelgrass (Zostera marina) bed.
The geoduck farm will consist of four-inch-diameter by 10-inch-long PVC tubes placed into the substrate during low tide. One PVC tube will be inserted per square foot of planting area, with three- to five inches of the tube exposed above the substrate surface. Geoduck seed will subsequently be placed in installed and submerged tubes by divers. Once a geoduck seed is planted, the tube will then be covered with mesh caps and secured with UV resistant rubber bands. After two years, the tubes will be removed, and geoducks will be harvested about five or six years after planting.
The following upland parcels will be used as part of this proposal:
(1) An unimproved, upland parcel zoned rural residential (0.29 acre) along Shine Road would be used for secondary parking for aquaculture project;
(2) An unimproved, upland parcel zoned rural residential (1.26 acre) accessed from Shine Road would be used for tube storage and parking for the aquaculture operation;
(3) A Jefferson County park (William R. Hicks Park), located immediately west of the geoduck farm, may be used for parking; and
(4) A state park (Shine Tidelands State Park), located immediately north of the Hood Canal Bridge, will be used as a boat launch.
No ground disturbing activities are proposed at any of these four sites.
The applicant submitted the following reports: Biological Evaluation (and Addendums), Eelgrass Delineation (and Addendums), Visual Assessment, Cumulative Impacts (and Addendum), Habitat Management Plan/No Net Loss, and Gear Management Plan. The Biological Evaluation refers to netting and rebar, neither of which are included in the current application. Therefore, no netting or rebar would be placed in the 5.15-acre project area if the proposal were to be approved.
The proposal is subject to review under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and the applicant submitted a SEPA Environmental Checklist.

|Postal District||Northeast Dabob Bay|
|Project Description||The proposal is for a Shoreline Substantial Development Permit for 10 acres of suspended tumble oyster aquaculture, adjacent to 55 acres of existing and on-going bottom oyster and manila clam aquaculture. The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe are proposing to produce shellfish (oyster and manila clam) for human consumption. The proposal is located on Washington State Department of Natural Resources tidelands along the northeast shoreline of Dabob Bay. The leased tidelands are a total of 67.76 in size. These tidelands have been used for aquaculture cultivation previously and 55 acres of the proposal is considered to be an existing and ongoing use and is therefore not subject to a Shoreline Substantial Development Permit. The proposed existing and ongoing use methods include On Bottom Beach Oysters, On Bottom Flip Bags, and Manila Clam farming methods of seeding substrate and covering with predator netting. Ten acres of new Suspended Tumbled Oyster Culture is proposed. The Suspended Tumble Oyster Culture method consists of structures subject to a Shoreline Substantial Development Permit. No development is proposed landward of ordinary high water mark. All access is proposed by boat using the Quilcene Marina boat launch and the Point Whitney boat launch (WDFW). A No Net Loss biological report to address impacts to the shoreline functions and processes was submitted. A Visual Analysis Report of the aesthetic effects of the tumble bags was submitted. An Archeological Survey of the project area has been completed. A Flood Development Permit will also be issued by the Jefferson County Department of Community Development. A US Army Corps of Engineers Nation Wide 48 Permit has been issued. A lease with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources is under negotiation. The proposal is subject to review under the State Environmental Policy Act.|
